View Of Mt. Princeton Near Nathrop, Colorado
So this is the view of Mt. Princeton from the small town of Nathrop, an unincorporated area approximately eight miles south of Buena Vista. There is hardly anything in the town of Nathrop besides a "hodge podge" of homes (Highway 285 runs through it), although it does have a post office.
For the photo, I drove just a bit west on Chaffee County Road 162. This is the main road that leads to the Chalk Cliffs (left side of the photo), the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, Frontier Ranch Conference Center, Mt. Princeton Road (which leads to the hiking trailhead), St. Elmo and Tincup Pass.
